Week 5 Navigation: Intro | QB | RB | WR | TE | Flex | Ki | DST | PPR | 0.5PPR
There is a tremendous but understandable drop after tier 2 this week. Gore, Rice, and Murray are the last RB's I would count on to produce RB1 numbers.
Everyone after that pack in tier 3 looks more like a RB2 this week. Trent Richardson, facing the Seattle defense, is dropped into this tier.
David Wilson looked slightly better last week, and experts have put him back among the ranks of Giovani Bernard and Lamar Miller.
Meanwhile, CJ Spiller, who has been continually under produced compared to Fred Jackson, as fallen down to the Ryan Matthews and Knowshon Moreno territory.
Darren McFadden is an injury concern, so keep an eye on him.
